ELUCV07 - Recording Yourself (online)

With the switch to online teaching reducing the amount of physical face-to-face time you might have with your students, you might be thinking of ways in which you might record yourself. You might do this for a variety of replace lectures, explain concepts, provide feedback, create a connection between you and your students or establish your presence in your module.

In this one hour session we will introduce to the various ways you can record yourself using tools that are available to you as a member of staff at QMUL. You'll leave the session able to decide which method will work best for what you want to achieve and to go and create a recording of yourself.

In this session we will cover: Why you might want to record yourself, different types of recording you might make, different tools available to you at QMUL and when you might use each, tips for recording yourself including how to get good sound and how to plan to make your recordings re-usable.

If the session is not run at a time when you can attend, there are also video guides available at, text guides at for getting started with making videos, and weekly e-learning drop-ins at where you can speak to a member of the team.

The E-Learning Unit are running online training sessions for staff to get help with teaching remotely. These sessions are designed to show you the most commonly used functions of the tools, explore how you can use them with students, give you some hands-on practice and have your questions answered, supported by guidance documentation.
